St George’s is clear about its mission. We are here to bring learning to life for every member of our school community, just as water brings life to the world. We are here to prepare children for their journey through life as responsible respectful citizens of the future who are ambitious, courageous and kind. We aim to develop life-long learners who thrive in our care and bring life to the future of our world.
Our Christian Values
Our core values are kindness, courage and ambition. Like the flow of water in a river, they flow through our vision and in everything we do for our children to be the life giving future of our world. We learn about our values during worship, class time, playtime and with our friends, teachers and families.
Kindness – Water of Life
“Be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, as God in Christ forgave you.”
- Be kind to the world that God gave us.
- Be kind to yourself, look after your own physical and mental health.
- Be kind to each other.
Courage – The Strength of Water
“I can do all things through him who strengthens me.”
- Through God we have courage.
- Courage to stand up for what is right even when others around us may not.
- Courage in our own self-belief.
- Courage to take risks and accept a challenge.
Ambition – The Power of Water
“But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you”
- Water is powerful it can overcome any obstacle. We have power through God to achieve our own goals and obstacles that life sets in our way.
- We celebrate the gifts that God has given us and develop these talents to achieve our vocational, technical and academic ambitions.
Our school, nestled in the Clun Valley, with the River Clun running through its heart, and surrounded by the beautiful South Shropshire hills, offers a creative, challenging and nurturing environment for our children.
We are a three class school that welcomes children to become part of our special family. As a small rural school we get to know each of our children very well We ensure that each child is valued as an individual, with many returning as parents and even grandparents themselves! We are proud of our high quality nursery with excellent facilities for three to five year olds in our Foundation Stage Unit.
The school values its Church status and has links with St George’s Church, a 2 minute walk from the school. We continue to build a real partnership between home, school and the local community with this relationship being developed on values of mutual trust and respect.
As a school committed to preparing children to be responsible, educated, future citizens, our children have access to a wide range of spiritual, social, moral and cultural (SMSC) experiences throughout the year. As a rural school we ensure we make the most of the surrounding and wider facilities to enrich our curriculum including: work with community members and groups, Shropshire Library and Museum Service, sporting facilities, local and visiting theatre companies, trips to experience different cultures and Walcot Arboretum, where ‘Forest School’ is well-established and integrated into our school life. Our curriculum is built around enriching our children’s lives and we aim to do this every day.
We believe that children should have the opportunity to be responsible citizens and understand their impact on the world around them, both local and worldwide. All children have the opportunity during their time at school to be an active part of groups and teams to develop and apply these skills. Children are elected by their classmates to the following roles: School Council, Eco Warrior, House Captain, Sports Leader, Playground Pal, Digital Leader and Librarian. During the school year we also take part in a range of charity events and projects to learn about, develop and care for the area in which we live such as Caring for God’s Acre Burial Grounds Project, working in the burial grounds of St George’s Church.
We offer extensive and varied before and after-school provision with well attended clubs such as sports clubs, young engineers and arts & crafts.
We have an industrious and committed PTA who fund many exciting opportunities for the children.
